      Thanks for your post. What do you mean with 'a quick turnaround'?
      Do you mean warriors for hire would write a complete ebook for me?

    I don't get Fiverr except as a loss leader. Do people actually do great work for $5? Is someone only willing to spend $5 expecting a result that will really build their business?

      I have actually found good voice over work on there.. most is crap, but what can you expect for $5.

      I wasnt happy with my voice over from a "professional", out of curiosity I hired some one of fiver to do one.. What the hell it was $5 bucks. If it sucked who cares, move on. I was rather impressed, and hired them for several more videos.. one video was 8 minutes.. Still charged only $5 bucks. Though I felt bad and gave a $10 dollar tip..

      But I don't get it. Fiverr takes 25%, so people are doing these gigs for $4. SO I was surprised to find quality.

        Ya the content will be the hard part. You can find good people on the warrior forum that can do the cover for you and it looks nice.

  • An eBook does not have to look all fancy. As long as your eBook gives away what you are trying to teach, then it is all you need. You do not have to worry about trying to make it look a certain way. All the best.

    Frank..do you just want the Cover designed..or the content..??
    If it's the content..here is what I do...
    I begin to write..short sentences..paragraphs..bullet points..etc
    I then find a Ghostwriter..& let him/her finish it off for me.
    Reason I do it this way is..
    1. they get an understanding of how I want it written..( the tone )
    2. and it gives them a fairly good road map of what you want !

    Hope this helps.

    I use Photoshop and Cover Action Pro. Not a cheap combination but IMO they enable you to get the best results possible if you know how to use them. Personally I am very fussy with graphics and need top quality. Using these tools you will certainly achieve that.

    Frank,
    Are you referring to a PDF type ebook or the Kindle? If the Kindle, all you need is Microsoft Word.

    If you need a PDF ebook, you can also use Word and then load a cool looking PDF design.
